Public Service Events
Public service is a fundamental value at UW Law. Please join us at one of our many programs that encourage a hard look at the major public policy concerns of our time including employment and migration, educational disparity, and health and disabilities.
Social Justice Tuesdays
Throughout the academic year, the Gates Public Service Law Program teams up with members of the law school community to host this inspirational weekly programming series. Any member of the UW Law community can propose a topic for a Social Justice Tuesday (SJT). Programming includes a wide range of events led by nationally recognized practitioners and community organizers as well as professors. We have shown documentary films accompanied by related discussions, hosted debates between professors and/or practitioners and much more.
Gates Public Service Law Speaker Series
The Gates Public Service Law Program features talks by individuals engaged in
public service. The purpose of this series is to introduce the law school
community and others outside the law school to information about the many ways
attorneys can serve the public good. Speakers come from a range of different
backgrounds and areas of expertise and engage our community in a conversation
about the meaning of public service.
